POETRY Reading: She Was A Gem, by Sylvester Anderson

Performed by Val Cole

SHE WAS A GEM by Sylvester Anderson

She was a gem in a sea of forgotten treasures
Despite the distance between our shores
Love showed us favor and brought us together
We were familiar souls connected through spiritual intuition
Like we had shared numerous sunrises and sunsets before
We plunged into the deepest point of love
Heart first into the point of no return
Swimming towards a common shore
One where we could gaze at sunsets and stars
Hand in hand, clasped hands
Absorbing all that love had to offer

She was a gem in a sea of forgotten treasures
I was neither scavenger or treasure hunter
Just a fortune man to be chosen to love her
